Oreos are the types of cookies that you never really want, but are good if you’re forced to eat them at Vacation Bible School or church potluck when the homemades cookies are gone.
But will churches like the new ad campaign by Kraft Foods, photoshopping Oreos to symbolize gay pride?
In response to the calls for boycotting the food company, Basil Maglaris, a spokeswoman for Kraft Foods, clarified the ad:
“We are excited to illustrate what is making history today in a fun and playful way,” she said in an email to ABC News. “As a company, Kraft Foods has a proud history of celebrating diversity and inclusiveness. We feel the OREO ad is a fun reflection of our values.”
So… The food company just wants to celebrate their values with a little fun? What’s not to love?
Of course, this is just the latest “gay pride” initiatives. Target also has a line of gay pride products.I guess if you’re homosexual, it would be a great deal of fun to go to Target and buy some Oreos. For the rest of us — you know, people who’d rather not feel like they’re inherently supporting a cause antithetical to their deeply held beliefs — I guess we’ll have to make some hard choices.
Well, the choices aren’t really that hard, are they?
After all, no one really likes the people who bring Oreos to the potlucks anyway.
